Four years after the introduction of the first model, Skoda is presenting an updated version of the Kodiaq family SUV as part of a large SUV promotion campaign. So now, Skoda is providing the Kodiaq with an update.

Skoda doesn't seem to have changed anything in terms of size. This is because basic updates are not included in this facelift. Buyers of the 4.7 meters SUV can still look forward to the optionally available third row of seats and a maximum trunk volume of up to 2,065 litres.

LED headlights are now available as standard, and full LED matrix headlights are also optionally available for the first time. LED taillights are used at the rear.

With this facelift, the top model Skoda Kodiaq RS is celebrating its comeback. Now, the RS model uses the 2.0 TSI petrol engine drives with 180 kW / 245 hp. The RS model has 20-inch rims as standard. As before, the Skoda Kodiaq is also available as a gasoline engine with 150 or 190 hp and with the two-litre diesel in the 150hp and 200 hp output levels.

The 2021 Skoda Kodiaq family SUV has an all-wheel drive and DSG dual-clutch transmission are standard (with the exception of the basic 1.5 TSI petrol engine).

The interior of the Skoda Kodiaq is adorned with the new steering wheel from the Skoda Octavia. The sports steering wheel, which is used in the Sportline and RS model variants, has three spokes. Electrically adjustable ergonomic leather seats with massage and air conditioning functions are available as an option. The infotainment system has a standard 9.2-inch display.

The 2021 Skoda Kodiaq will hit the market in July 2021. Prices for the lifted series are not yet revealed. The current model with 1.5 TSI and manual transmission starts at 29,990 euros. However, prices for the Skoda Kodiaq are likely to increase slightly and start above 30,000 euros.

Sadly, electrified drives are still not planned.
It's hard to believe, but when it premiered in 2016, the Skoda Kodiaq was the Czech manufacturer's first SUV. Skoda Kodiaq was a complete success: by the end of March 2021, more than 600,000 units had been built in the Czech Republic, China, Russia and India.

The direct competitors of the 2021 Skoda Kodiaq include Kia Sorento, Peugeot 5008 and VW Tiguan Allspace.
